VL-GU was a little Chinese idol, but
if you will spell his same back
ward you will find that his name at
least is English. It was given to him
by the American gentleman in whose
house Yl-gu was lying.
For years and years, thousands per
haps. Yl-gu, as we will call him, had
lived in a temple In China, where there
were many other idols, some large and
some small, tall and short, lean-looking
and fat ones. But all ugly to behold.
Now Yl-gu had sat in his niche all
these years wondering why all the
people who came to the temple left
flowers and fruit in front of the idols.
None of them, however, interested him,
and as he had never known of -a differ
ent life, he did not long for .any other.
But one day a party of tourists came
to the temple, and while Yl-gu had seen
many tourists, none of them had ever
noticed him until this party came, and
then a gentleman had exclaimed to his
friends: "Well, of all the ugly little im
ages, look at this one. Did you ever see
such a face?"
Of course; Yl-gu did not understand
a word,, but as they laughed when
they saw him, he thought it was some
thing nice and was pleased.
"I am going to ask that old man to
sell me that ugly little idol," said the
gentleman. And he did, but the man
shook his head and held up his hands
as though he was horrified at the very
idea. After much talk, however, and
what to the man seemed a great deal
of money, his conscience was over
come, and Yl-gu was taken from his
niche, where he had been for many
years, and he was in the pocket of the
gentleman's coat before he could realize
what had happened. ,
Then there had been a long journey,
and at last he was on a table in the
gentleman's home in a strange land.
"I have bought you a friend. Billi-
Kin, sam the gentleman, as he put
Yl-gu on the table, "and his name is
Yl-gu; that sounds foreign, and it
means that he is ugly. You two are a
nice pair," he oaid. stepping away from
the table and looking at the two images.
"Where did you come from?" asked
Billikln as the door closed behind the
gentleman, but Yl-gu only shook his
head, and Billikln kept on laughing.
But after a while Yl-gu could under
stand Billikin, and he was able to say
a few words himself, so that he made
Billikin understand that he was a very
important creature, and that he pos
sessed strange power.
"What can you- do?" asked Billikln.
"I can scare away trouble," Yl-gu
"So can I," said Billikin, "and I was
only made a few years ago."
"I have been watching you," said
Yl-gu, "and I cannot see that you scare
away anything or anybody. Why, the
master gave you to the baby to play
with the other day and she threw you
on the floor and abused you in the most
terrible manner. I should never have
"Oh! I do not call that trouble," said
Billikin, "but you could not help it if
the master gave you to the baby; you
would have to be thrown around or any
thing she cared to do with you."
Just then the door opened and the
master came in with the baby in his
arms. She put out her hands for Billi
kin, and then, seeing Yl-gu, changed her
mind and pointed at him.
"Want old Yl-gu?" asked her father.
"Now, watch me," said Yl-gu as the
gentleman picked him up and gave him
to the baby.
But no sooner had the baby been
seated on the floor and looked at Yl-gu
then she put him on the floor and began
to cry, moving away from. Yl-gu as far
as she could.
Her father picked her up. "I do not
wonder," he said, '"he is a pretty ugly
looking fellow. Isn't he, but he can't
The baby could not be induced to take
Yl-gu again and he was put back on
"What did I tell you?" Yl-gu said.
"I can scare away trouble. She will
never ask for me again, and I will be
left in comfort." .
"T should' not call that comfort," said
Billikin. "I was made to scar away

after day looking as glum as you do.
Besides .that, what are a few knocKs in
this world? They only make us better
able to see the funny side. This is no
place for you; you, better go back to
the land you came from, where you can
sit and doze all day. For my part, I am
glad I was made In the land where
they keep things mving."
"All right," said Yl-gu, "you Keep
moving: 1 11 go to sleep."

Meeting Is Secret, but Result Is De
clared to Be That Offensive
Placard Will Not Be I'sed. .
With Mayor Albee sitting as a friend
of both sides, labor union officials and
members of the Chamber of Commerce
yesterday started negotiations which
are expected to result in the discontin
uance of boycott banners on the streets
of Portland without the necessity of
the question-of prohibiting them being
submitted to the voters. While the
meeting was secret, it is said the way
was made clear for a settlement of the
boycott banner problem in the near fu
ture. Representing the Chamber of Com
merce were O. M. Clark, C. C. Colt,
J. B. Korr and J. C. Ainsworth. The
Labor Council was represented by B.
E. Smith. C. M. Rynerson. C. O. Young.
William McKenzie and E. J. Stack. The
meeting was called at the instigation
of officials of the Chamber of Com
merce and the Central Labor Council.
It is expected by those who attended
the meeting that the problem will be
settled satisfactorily. Under the plan
which is being formulated between the
labor officials and the Chamber of
Comerce officials the Central Labor
Council will cease the use of boycott
Boycott banners have been the source
of annoyance in Portland for years past.
A fight has been made against them
by commercial organizations on the
ground that they accomplish nothing
and do great harm to the city by
frightening away prospective investors.
It is said many of the labor officials
are opposed to the banners.
